rear brake wear made worse by cruise control

so my 116d with 5000 miles on it says it needs rear pads in just 12000 miles.

yet, my colleague's 116i that i was looking around today, which has 1200 miles, claims that there are 23000 miles left in their rear brakes.

now mine has cruise, and his doesn't.

mewonders if the constant feathering of the brakes by the cruise is to blame for the shockingly low life of my brakes compared to his?

any thoughts? 17000 miles for a set of brakes is shocking to be honest
